  • About This Program

    Don’t miss our final drop-in art workshop inspired by A Woman’s Work. Explore the styles and themes of the eleven artists whose images are displayed in this exhibit focusing on an array of women and their roles, identities and experiences. The masters – Bearden, Biggers, Catlett and Green, among them – employ vivid imagery, intricate patterns, a sense of reality and wonder to illuminate Black women’s lives.

    Led by teaching artist Alicia McDaniel, create a mixed-media work that reflects the nuanced and unwavering spirit of the Black woman.
